I have no experience with the MTL in a Z4 as I have an auto, but years ago I switched to the Redline MTL synthetic in my NA Miata (5 spd manual). Redline claims their MTL is actually less slippery...

You are right about the Akebono vs stock pad (lower dust vs less bite), and any pad you purchase will be a compromise. That said, if your driving leans toward the spirited side, you might want to...

I think you are referring to the parcel shelf (although that is a misnomer since you can't put parcels on it). Primarily it is there to block anyone from seeing into your trunk from the outside. Some...

I don't have any brilliant ideas but you are wise to try the free and cheap stuff first before throwing parts at it. Have you pulled any plugs to check color? Does sound massively rich though....

I think cars were shipped new in transport mode to discourage running the engine for non-essential purposes. Quickest way to tell you are in transport mode is that A/C won't function and the HVAC...

LOL, just try getting rid of me. But sharing a comment and splitting is ok, the issue is with folks who ask for help and then disappear like brownies at a Weight Watchers meeting.

Glad you had a good time on the track, it's pretty addictive but also brings out weak points in the car. On yours it might be something as simple as a worn or dry throw out bearing. If the whine...

I agree with all sentiments, and I have been "that guy". I think because this forum requires no initiation, it is easy to jump in with a question (and jump right back out again).
